Ayam Rica Rica ~ 印尼香辣鸡


Ayam (Chicken) rica-rica is a speciality from Manado, the capital city of North Sulawesi province of Indonesia.   Rica means 'chilli' in North Sulawesi language, therefore Ayam rica-rica literally translates to mean chicken with chilli sauce or fresh chillies.   In Manado cuisine, almost all kinds of meat, poultry, seafood can be prepared into rica-rica dish but the most popular among them is Ayam rica-rica.  I tired cooking this dish and undoubtedly it  was well recieved by my family members and they requested that I make this again in the near future.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
